    Hi, has the turntable got a preamp inside it because if it hasn't it would need to be connected to a preamp first so that the signal is boosted so the speakers can be driven. In regards to the turntable its difficult to evaluate without seeing a picture of the connections and the setup, usually if its just a record deck the player would have a hot and a cold and a ground so that it can be connected to an amp. If you can send me pictures of the connections then I can find a slolution for you.

It is difficult to say with 100% confidence because the pictures are out of focus, but it looks like you have just a regular turntable. The wire connections you show are the bridge between the tonearm and the external RCA style cables. The extra wire (#5) is the ground wire. You should be able to connect this to any receiver that has a phono input.

For confirmation, can you update this with the model number of the turntable? That will allow me to confirm what I have stated above.

I have a panasonic 803us 8-track player. Bought new speakers for the unit, but none of jacks match up. I would like to adapted the new speakers before buying another set of speakers. Can anybody help me...

Why not leave the original jacks in place, cut the wires near the old speakers and new speakers and just replace the speakers, using 2 scotch lock connectors to connect the 2 wires to each speaker. (Keep polarity consistent for each speaker). Of course you should test one speaker first to make sure they will work with your unit, before you cut any of the remaining wires.You can always connect the originals back as long as there is a bit of slack in the wire.

I have an old Chevy and I'm trying to hook up my Kenwood kdc-138 stereo. I have the red wire connect to the red ignition wire and black wire to ground. I have the yellow wire hokoed up to the ignition...

The fact that your speakers have only one wire, indicates that they are the old negative ground type. You will have to buy new speakers, or try and connect the negative wires of your speaker wires from the radio to the car body (chassis) and try that. Normally you will get a bit of static when you start your engine

Sony-DG820 Subwoofer

The powered subwoofer should be connected to the black subwoofer output near the bottom of the receiver in just about the center. A subwoofer uses line level signals and has its own amplifier, Good chance that you wiped out a channel. Put the wiring back the way it was, and IF the channel was not directly connected to the speaker terminals, MAYBE, JUST MAYBE it will still work.
Chances are slim...

Panasonic SA-AK600

Try to power on the unit without the speakers connected. If it works normally without the error showing, then a speaker wire maybe shorted or a speaker defective. If the error F61 is still there, then most likely the Regulator IC is defective in the unit.

Car stereo installation speakers

Your old unit was a common ground unit meaning all speaker grounds as well a radio ground were the same. The new unit should NOT be connected to this wire configuration. Newer units change the potential difference of the speaker power meaning that the - wire of the unit may have negative 24v on it so IT CANNOT BE REFERENCED TO EARTH OR CHASSIS GROUND.

I would recommend rewiring the speakers to the radio for best reliability and sound quality.
